Causes of female hair loss

Potential causes for female baldness or androgenetic alopecia in women include

    We have around 100,000 hair follicles on our heads and losing between 100-120 hairs per day is a normal, natural part of the hairs' growth cycle.

    For some people, the amount of hair they lose is much greater than normal and that's when it gets worrying. This can severely affect a woman's emotional well-being and quality of life

    There can be many different causes of hair loss including nutritional deficiency, hormone imbalance, genetics, toxins which can lead to androgenetic alopecia and autoimmune conditions such as alopecia areata.

It can start any time after the onset of puberty, but women tend to first notice it around menopause, when hair loss typically increases. The risk rises with age, and it's higher for women with a history of hair loss on either side of the family.
